    It’s a stunning and beautiful addition to the Southside. I take the 6 bus about 4 times a month and the bridge is a beautiful change in scenery. Now, let’s work on a multitude of physically protected bike lanes and perhaps bus route changes to help more folks safely and efficiently get to the lakefront.

  • I biked it this morning. It’s so lovely!

    It’s a gorgeous bridge, a great addition. It’s also very well lit at night (though you wouldn’t know it from Lake Shore Drive, the lights are so well placed).

    I love stuff like this; I wish we could build bike lanes like this CITY-WIDE…or ban cars from large sections of the city.
